    Hey guys, I'm looking for some advice on a small project I am working on. It's a Leave me alone box ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMGJB410Ccs ).

    Very simple concept, but being a complete noob to servos and controllers, I can't sift out exactly what I need to buy from the huge amounts of info on the net. The servos I understand are fairly universal, its the control circuit that stumps me. If anyone can point me to where I can buy a board that will do what i need, I would really appreciate it.

    Those are just simple modeler servos. The controller is probably a microcontroller like Microchip 10FXXX and up. Even the trusty 16F84 will do it. There really is not much circuity involved. It is all software.
